FREE EPA Region 3 Extreme Weather/Climate Change Workshop Invitation

We have opened the registration website for our FREE May 9 -10th workshop on extreme weather events.  Please visit for more details and register today.  This site contains more details and logistical information.  More details will be shared after your registration is received.

Please share with others in your organization who may have a role to play in preparedness and response to extreme weather events.

On May 9 and 10, 2013, EPA Region 3 will convene a 1.5-day conference on water sector impacts from extreme weather events and climate change.  This conference will be held in Laurel, Maryland at the Conference Facilities at the Patuxent Research Refuge’s National Wildlife Visitor Center.  This is likely to be the first of two workshops; (the second of which will take place in Pennsylvania later this year, unless impacted by budget cuts).  We are seeking continuing education credits for you.

This conference will touch on a variety of topics of interest to drinking water and wastewater utilities including:

  • Preparing for water-sector impacts related to extreme weather
  • Mitigation vs. adaptation measures to be undertaken at the utility level
  • Funding opportunities for Utility mitigation and adaptation activities
  • Utility perspectives on implementing mitigation/adaptation measures (e.g., case studies)

I thank those of you who took the time to provide input into our planning by responding to our pre-workshop survey monkey.

A word about lunch.  EPA cannot pay for your lunch; however, we have arranged for a caterer to offer box lunches.  More details can be found on the registration website.  Costs are based on attendance and with a good turnout, will be less than the cost stated.  We are working out the details for providing coffee each morning as well.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please let me know.  And, please come join us for these critical discussions.
